E-learning needs to be ‘my learning’ – m-learning by another name.

‘Time to see the individual needs in a personal way’

This is relevant to all learners, so perhaps provision for disabled students can put them in the vanguard – this is in theory where e-learning is taking us, reading Littlejohn and Pegler (2007) ‘Preparing for blended e-learning’

The authors predict that the shift is towards putting the needs of the learner first – I feel however we are a long easy from that – not least the inertia of the physical infrastructure, but the traditions, habits and ways of our educators too.

Instead of seeing e-learning as a way to get one standardised module in front of 10,000 people it needs to be seen as a way of delivering 10,000 modules to 10,000 people with the vastness and complexity of their differing needs, interests, experiences, motivations, capacities, skills and so on.
